Paardebloem - Belgian Strong Pale Ale (9%) - New Belgium Brewing Co. (Colorado)

App: Beautiful apricot orange. This brew is very cloudy and opaque. Slight greenish hue at the edges. Thin, one finger head that settles quickly but leaves a ton of lacing.

Smell: Warm peach cobbler like aroma, hints of spice and very delicate and almost tea like. Has a certain creaminess on the back of the throat that's very appealing. Grains of paradise notes subtle with peach pulp and a slight vinous tweak.

Taste: Spicy, sweet, complex, boozy, warm. Tons of different flavors bombard the palate in a kamikaze assault, but finishes amazingly clean and balanced despite the fray. Foretaste is sweet and peachy, transitioning to a slight sourness that balances the significant malt profile. True taste is slightly leafy (amazed that I can actually taste the dandelion) with a distinct alcohol warmth. Love that it's sweet but not cloying, and overall finishes pretty dry. A lot like some other belgian strongs but way more drinkable. All the flavors are pretty subtle, but combine very well.

Mouth: Pretty light bodied, flavors pass over the palate without adhering. Carbonation is light, could maybe be a little more carbonated, but overall very pleasant.

Home tasting, 22oz bottle into Snifter. 1/6/14.
